1. Certification
I affirm that I am a certified diver and have read and understood the rules of the Lake Champlain Underwater Historic Preserve.

2. Acceptance of Risk and Responsibility
I fully recognize that diving is an inherently dangerous activity and I must assess all conditions and use my own judgment in planning and executing each dive. I assume responsibility for all my actions while diving on the Lake Champlain Underwater Historic Preserve sites. I further assume the risk of any injury I may sustain and hold harmless the State of Vermont, its employees and agents, and the State of New York and its employees and agents, from any liability therefore.

3. Agreement to Do No Harm
The Underwater Historic Preserve provides public access for divers to some of the Lake’s historic shipwrecks. The system is designed to protect these irreplaceable historic resources both from anchor damage and artifact collecting. By registering to dive, you agree to do no harm or collect anything from these wrecks.

4. Access and Annual Registration
Access to the sites in the Lake Champlain Underwater Historic Preserve is free of charge, but divers must register annually prior to using the Preserve System.
